August 4: Steve & Lisa Rief, Redland, OR

Redland, a beautiful community near Oregon City, has Christmas tree and hay farmers, livestock, green grass, pine trees, and a stunning view of Mt. Hood to the east. Many commute to Portland; others are self-employed. People here love the outdoors.    Unfortunately, Oregon is also the most unchurched state in the U.S. This has been […]

As You Pray This Week

We praise the Lord for a strong finish to our fiscal year.  Although we had increased expenses in salary supplement and medical premiums, increased giving from our donors and churches enabled us to finish in the black.  We had budgeted a deficit and then experienced an unexpected jump in medical premiums, but God provided abundantly!  […]

Elliott & Victoria Harder, Nukko Lake, BC

July has been a great month of ministry as a Village Missionary. One highlight was the baptism of seven people. Five had talked to me about it ahead of time, and we went over what baptism means and why we would want to do it, but I had a nagging feeling that there were more […]

July 28: Ron & Joan Germain, Northfield, ON

Our church is in a rural agricultural setting, surrounded by fruit trees and rotating crops. We’re only 20-30 minutes from the cities we shop in, and about 40 minutes north of the shores of Lake Erie.  We recently completed our in-house soccer with a starting attendance of 42 children, with most parents staying and some […]

Patrick McAloon, Nashwaak Bridge, NB

One Saturday a church attendee and I picked up a hitchhiker headed into Fredericton. He was 24, came from a military family in another province, and had recently moved to a nearby community. What a tremendous chance to share what Christ had done in our lives with this young man. He had never attended church, […]

July 21: Tyler & Misty Larson, Bethany, KS

 In north-central KS, we’re 11 miles from Hunter, the closest town. Because of our location, we think of this church as a “Lighthouse in a Wheat Field.” Most people here are farmers or in a related field. We’re between four different towns and draw people from as far as 40 minutes away. We average 70 […]

Sam & Mary Courts, Springview, NE

A Christian friend from a neighboring community stopped by before church to tell us the following story (paraphrased, of course): “I was visiting the other day with Jerry, and he told me he had been at Rodeo Bible Camp with his two kids this year. His comment to me was, ‘I don’t know who needed […]

Machias is 6.5 miles due east of Everett, WA, home of the world’s largest building, the Boeing 747-787 assembly plant. The Puget Sound I-5 corridor, which includes Tacoma-Seattle-Everett, is home to over 4 million people and contains ⅔ of the entire population of the state.

MARK & REBECCA BUECKERT, RYLEY, AB

I am coaching my son’s soccer team again this year. One of the girls on our team has had a very rough life at only 9 years old. She lost her dad to cancer, and her hearing started to go. She is now legally deaf; she can hear some with her hearing aids, but they […]
